Close the SOA! Vigil Weekend November 22-24

Join the Presbyterian Peace Fellowship at the annual vigil in Columbus, Georgia to close the School of Americas/WHINSEC. Thousands will gather at the gates of Fort Benning, with speakers, music, street theater, workshops and networking with people from across the Americas. We come together where the killers are trained to demand an end to US militarization and to impunity.

Syria: A Call to Prayer and Action

"As Presbyterians enter this Season of Peace, the people of Syria are on our hearts and minds. More than two years of conflict have resulted in over 100,000 deaths, 2 million Syrians becoming refugees, and the internal displacement of as many as 5 million Syrians. The use of chemical weapons on August 21, 2013, resulted in the deaths of over 1,400 people, including hundreds of children—a move prompting the United States, along with other nations, to contemplate the use of military force."

Announcing the New Colombia Accompaniment Coordinator, Jess Hunter-Bowman
